Men's Beauty Pageant To Be Held In Taiwan

The Mister International male beauty pageant will take place in Taiwan over the weekend, uniting men from 30 countries who will be judged on swimwear, evening wear and an interview, according to AFP.

"Just like the beauty contests for women, the contestants also will have to be judged by their posture and appearance, and the way they talk," said this year's hostess, Christine Huang. "But what will be different is that the event is for men. A tall and handsome man will be elected."

The contest does have a do-good spin. Competitors have been in Taiwan all month, visiting AIDS orphanages and homes for the elderly.

Over 500 people are expected to attend the crowning ceremony. The winner will receive $5000 and business contracts worth up to $45,000.
